My mom is the best mom anyone could ask for. She's understanding and very funny. She can make ANYONE laugh. She is a mother of two and raised us alone for the most part. In the picture is my mom, little sister, and my mothers boyfriend. (I'm not photogenic haha) Recently my mother had hand problems like numbness and could not use her hand for daily activities (such as opening a water bottle to buttoning her pants) and thought she had carpal tunnel. We were wrong. On the night of February 6th, she had an episode of her hand twitching along with her eye. She could not control her movement and had to be rushed to the hospital around midnight. I did not know how to process it and freaked out immediatly. This was my mom, I never expected this to happen. Turns out she has 6 tumors on her brain. She has brain and lung cancer. On Friday morning she is undergoing surgery to remove one of the big tumors on the left side of her brain. We are already struggling as is and without her working it is hard to pay bills, rent, and even her medical expenses. So all I am asking is a little donation to help my mom, myself, and my family go through this. Thank you so much and please share.

Amy won her battle of cancer and is no longer suffering anymore. She is an angel now and is looking over all of us. Amy arrived at heaven at 12:07 pm at November 14 2017. We appreciate everyone who has donated and we will now put those towards medical bills and funeral expenses. She wanted me, Ariel, to let you all know she appreciates and loves everyone who has looked over her in this time of need. She couldn’t be happier to have people like y’all in her life. Rest In Peace momma. ❤️

Update: The reason why Amy cannot eat, walk, or talk is because the tumor got bigger and mimicked a stroke. They have since then given her more medicine in hopes it helps. Thank you again.

Hi guys! Sorry for such late response. Amy underwent her brain surgery on 8/17/17. She has been healing well and only getting stronger. A few weeks after surgery, Amy had another session of gamma knife treatment. She is now doing outpatient therapy which helps her walk, talk, and eat. She appreciates everyone who has donated and thanks you all, as do I. Our friends and family are so hard working and awesome for helping us out and being there. Thank you again!

Amy had her oncologist appointment today. She decided to be a part of a clinical trial that alternates the use of oral cancer meds and IV immunotherapy. This should start in about three weeks. She has some more testing and procedures first. Also she has to ween off the steroids. Although, she still hasn't seen the dermatologist for melanoma source of origin the eyes were ruled out. The oncologist theorize it may be from subcutaneous tissue of left breast, since this was shown to have cancerous tissue on PET scan and no lump felt. Continued prayers for further stability and kicking cancers butt appreciated.
